06.11.2019: WiDH & iWiS present – “Digital Healthcare – Transforming Patient Care”

In partnership with the International Women in Science (iWiS), we are very excited to announce our joint event in Basel with guest speakers Christine K. Jacob, founder & managing director of Digi-Bridges, Silja Chouquet, founder & CEO of merakoi, and Dr. Helene Mountz, Global Marketing Director, PAH Market Development, Actelion – Johnson & Johnson with the topic “Digital Healthcare: Transforming Patient Care”.

WHAT IS THIS EVENT ABOUT AND WHY IS THIS RELEVANT

Big Data is reinventing how we address global healthcare challenges. Good quality healthcare data and lots of it can power groundbreaking medical innovation. Data informs strategic healthcare policies, and can potentially, when used in collaboration with Artificial Intelligence technology, minimize global health risks through improved prediction. Factors such as rampant bad data as well as public distrust in data privacy and digital healthcare solutions, continue to present significant challenges.

Christine Jacob, founder and managing director of Digi-Bridges will present: The Promise of Health Data: Is it really the new Oil? Research shows that clinicians express concerns related to issues such as data safety and security, interpretation, analysis, and dissemination, the flexibility to adjust what to track and how records and summaries are presented, and workflow integration. So what does this really mean and what can be done about it?

Silja Chouquet, founder and CEO of merakoi will share how we can build digital trust with the online community effectively and ethically by engaging with patient experts, so they can benefit from digital health solutions. What are the key touch-points in the patient journey where digital health solutions can add the ​most value?

Dr. Helene Mountz, Global Marketing Director, PAH Market Development, Actelion – Johnson & Johnson will share her experience of working with a group of key stakeholders in developing and launching such a digital project, with the aim to benefit both clinicians and patients suffering from pulmonary hypertension. Engaging clinicians to learn how to detect a rare disease, for the benefit of patients is the driver of the Echoright working team, and we will see how this initiative is positioned as the first step of a global mid- to long-term digital approach to medical education and is part of a global initiative, dedicated to further accelerating the diagnosis of this rare condition in populations at risk.

27.6.2019: “mhealth solutions that work and how to transform from corporate pharma to digital health entrepreneur”

Very excited to announce that our next guest speaker will be Christine J. Jacob, founder of Digi-Bridges, with the topic “mhealth solutions that work & how to transform from corporate pharma to digital health entrepreneur”.

WHAT TO EXPECT

1st part: Christine K. Jacob will tell us how she transitioned from a life in corporate and pharma to becoming a successful entrepreneur in digital health

2nd part: Despite the existence of adequate technological infrastructure and clearer policies, there are situations where users, mainly physicians, resist mobile health (mHealth) solutions. This is of particular concern, bearing in mind that several studies, both in developed and developing countries, show that clinicians’ adoption is the most influential factor in such solutions’ success.

So what are the factors impacting mHealth acceptance and adoption? And how can we develop solutions that will stay relevant and useful to our target users? It’s a bit more complex than it seems.

Join the discussion with Christine K. Jacob, founder of Digi-Bridges, an agency that helps unleash the potential of using Digital Strategies in advancing healthcare. Christine is also a Health Tech researcher at ARU in Cambridge and teaches Digital Marketing and Communications at the University of Applied Sciences Northwest Switzerland.

15.5.2019: The second sex – Digital Health for women and others

Have you ever used a health tracking app and wondered why it was not better designed for women?

That’s because although there are plenty of health and wellness related apps and products today, most of them are designed and built by men. Many of them therefore unintentionally exclude the needs of women users (and others) in the process.

So how can we create health apps that are well-designed, highly usable, and accessible to women?

After years of observing, evaluating, and designing digital products for various industries including healthcare, UX expert Sibylle will share her insights on user-centered design in the digital health sector, and discuss diverse examples of good and poor design.

She will also touch on the issue of ethics in design, discussing how not only UX designers but everybody in the design team can become more conscious in their processes, ensuring that digital health apps created are inclusive and meet the needs of diverse users.
